Brighterly is an online math learning platform dedicated to primary school students. We offer comprehensive math lessons for pre-K and K-5 students.

Math for 1st Grade: How Can Your Kid Study Numbers Online?
Your kid can learn math online by:
- Watching educational videos on YouTube or specialized math websites.
- Completing math practice tests.
- Playing math games.
However, to do so, your child will have to show immense time management skills and a desire for self-education. Homeschool first-grade math implies that you guide your student through all these activities, spending a couple of hours each day besides homework. In theory, it sounds good. But in practice, you will end up searching for online math tutors.
Brighterly’s Online Tutors Care about Children
Due to strict application procedures only the most qualified applicants eventually become our tutors. We rigorously check our applicant’s qualifications, teaching experience, educational background, and more.
To join our team and stay onboard, our tutors must:
- Have an academic degree.
- Complete intense training courses. Our candidates learn the ropes of working with us and adjust their methodology to align with our objectives and policies.
- Improve their skills regularly. Our tutors stay up to date on the best teaching practices and study the frontiers of pedagogy.
- Undergo a regular quality assessment to meet the highest teaching standards.
However, we believe that a good teacher should also love kids – our tutors care about students and understand that every child is born a genius. We help them discover their capabilities and succeed in math learning.
Brighterly’s Online Math for 1st Grade: What Makes Us Different?
We understand that current school practices can’t fulfill the needs of all students due to 100-year-old teaching approaches. Essentially, school math is limited to a notebook and a pen. We teach math for grade 1 differently, helping kids understand and love this subject. We help students build a solid math foundation, and here is why:
We Hint at Solutions Instead of Giving Answers Straight Away
Brighterly’s tutors don’t give straight answers – our students work on math problems themselves while we guide them, hinting at solutions if kids meet the dead end.
Our Students Do Real Math
The strongest students solve math problems on the blackboard, while the rest of the class writes down the answers – that is what happens at school.
Consequently, most children have no time to digest math problems themselves due to a lack of meaningful math practice. With us, students solve plenty of math problems and develop essential math skills – math practice accounts for 90% of the class time.
We Create a Mistake-Free Environment
At school, kids with math difficulties prefer to be quiet. If they solve math problems the wrong way, they will face the teacher’s condemnation followed by the giggles of their peers.
We act differently, aiming at a mistake-friendly environment. We don’t judge kids for wrong answers. We inspire them to try until they succeed and gain experience without the fear of mistakes.
Will The Tutor Also Help My Child with Their School Homework?
Brighterly’s tutors teach math topics independently of the school progress. We help kids strengthen specific math skills. Therefore, our curriculum will be different from the school one. However, if you choose 144 math classes, our tutors will help with school homework.
Do I Need to Attend the Classes with My Child?
Our tutors use the best teaching practices to engage students and keep them interested in the taught math topics. Parents can stay during the demo class to see how online tutorship works. Most adults prefer to leave their kids with tutors starting from the second lesson.
Are These Classes Safe for My Child?
Our online lessons are entirely safe for your kid – we value your privacy, safety, and comfort above all. You can check the process at any time. Our professionals undergo meticulous background checks. Therefore, your child will be entirely safe during the lesson.
When Will My Card Get Charged?
Our demo lesson is free. We will charge you 24 hours after the demo class once you subscribe to one of our packages. You can cancel the subscription at any time, and we will refund the rest of your order without asking questions.
